I am nervous to write this and to be doing this...putting it all out there, onto the social media universe of judgement. 2018 goals-- gotta love them. I feel like some of the hardest decisions in life are the 'just do it' ones. Most people don't act on their dreams or visions for themselves in fear of what other people will think or say. I understand. I'm right there with them. I have started many projects and have never had fear of failure. I do, however, have fear of what people think. The wine Wednesday LIVE video that I do on Facebook freak me out. You may not see it, but I am definitely shaking and usually need a glass of wine before hand. People freak me out. What they say and how they judge others freaks me out. That is the thing though. When I lost my dad in 2012, things changed. As he neared the end of his life, he told my sister's and I 'his biggest regrets'. It was during this conversation that I had one of those holy shit moments of clarity. An epiphany. I don't want to live with regrets. I dont want to look back and think "I wonder if...", or "I wish I had...". I want to just DO it all and see what happens. Learn from my failures. Improve on my successes. Inspire others to do the same. That is what this is all about for me.
I want this blog to be about inspiration, passion, honesty and definitely about wine and dogs. This is me holding myself accountable, but I also want to use this as a platform for others to do the same. I can't wait to share things... wine suggestions and information, dog moments, recommendations, horse photos, winery visits and to answer questions about any and all things wine, dogs, whatever. An open 'book' of sorts.
No regrets, that is what I am living for, and I hope I inspire you to do the same!
